Magnificent Selection Of Beautiful Persian Antique Ziegler Sultanabad Rugs and Carpets
Ziegler Sultanabad Rugs – These incredible Persian carpets were woven in Sultanabad around the 19th century’s last quarter, with the intent to appeal to more Western tastes. In the late 1800’s, in Sultanabad, a small town in NW Persia, a Swiss firm, the Ziegler Company, based in Manchester, England set up shop.
The Ziegler rug company began exporting carpets from Persian and importing the rugs to England and America where the demand was high. Their antique rugs are similar to Mahal’s but are distinguished by their sparsely drawn, large scale, over-sized designs and use of soft colors. They are lovely rugs that are enormously popular with decorators.
